republicans about immigration, social programs, and impeaching president obama, you would think they haven't learned anything from 2012 in some cases. for example, take a look at what virginia attorney general ken cuccinelli writes in his upcoming book. it strikes a similar note to mitt romney's old problem about that 47%. remember? here is a new version. quote, one of their favorite ways to increase their power, he's talking about the democrats here, is by creating programs that dispense subsidized government benefits such as medicare, social security, and outright welfare. these programs make people dependent on government, and once people are dependent they feel they can't afford to have the programs taken away no matter how inefficient, poorly run, or costly to the rest of society. does the republican party have a chance with folks like cuccinelli around? bob shrum is a democratic strategist, and michael steele is a former rnc chairman and msnbc political analyst. bob, i want you to talk about this because it's fairly familiar talk. whether it has any logic to it or not, there is somet

actually started to enact some of the measures that president obama would like to see enacted nationwide, including a violence prevention program for youth, but more broadly they have expanded and improved their background checks, including information that they collect at the state level of people who are suffering from mental problems, people who have criminal records. so president obama will go there on monday to talk about some of his own proposals to stem gun violence, which, of course, include reinstating the ban on assault weapons, limiting high capacity magazines and universal background checks which then n recently said that is something they oppose. president obama and vice president biden we expect them to hit the road to talk about this issue of gun safety. it's a part of their broader plan to get congress to sign on with some of the legislative changes they would like to see happen. >> well, clearly as you point out, it does not seem there's a coincidence to going to a place where we're talking about background checks given the attention that background checks and that issu

idea of what federal programs are about are not about makers and takers. they're about giving everybody a chance. >> they sure are. >> that was the speech that president obama gave in the inauguration. and cuccinnelli and all the others can try to play this game. it's a loser. paul ryan, by the way, who i saw the other night at a dinner, i said what are you up to, what are you looking at? what do you want to do this time around? and he talked about -- he said he wanted to look at poverty and see what he could do about poverty. i actually think that -- this may sound silly to you, but paul ryan's a smart enough politician to know that he made a big mistake talking about takers and makers in 2012. >> no question about it. >> and he's not going to repeat it. cuccinnelli can repeat it. paul ryan's not going to. >> gentlemen, let's talk about chuck hagel. i was surprised at how republicans threw another republican under the bus today, especially the exchange between mccain and chuck hagel. howard, what did you think of that? >> well, i think there's a lot of republican resentment about hagel
